The BBC has confirmed that the newest iteration of its on-demand TV catch-up service iPlayer will be released on Sony's PlayStation 3. Simon Cross of the BBC told TechRadar that it will be looking to introduce....
While Youtube seem s to be only falling backwards in PS3 support.
You can't manage you account or playlist much less rate or make comments, things you could have done when the first day. Nevermind XL which is a poor ADD joke. @dangert12: Grooveshark or Pandora on the browser.
o thanks :) book mark them lol, bubbles 4 that i like grooveshark ^_^ really greatful
youtube is lacking i agree i'd like to last fm support 2
I agree with the second, Pandora would be nice or perhaps last.fm like on the 360. Though since it is only available to Gold on 360 I wonder if it would only be available to PSN+ subscribers. Can't see Sony doing something like that, but ya never know...
Neat. :) All we need now is Youtube built into the XMB it'll be perfect.
I'd rather the Sony improve on the PS3 browser to be honest. Or atleast pass on development to Google so they can add Chrome. They seem to be pretty chummy these days.
Meh, even if they did improve the browser, having a Youtube app on the XMB would be far more attractive. :)
idk why it would look just like you tube xl on the browser
make it a PS3 app, not just a web page. things are faster and more streamlined this way. just like mlb.tv
MLB TV? how did you get that?
im from the US. just saying. they should go the app route.
I really wish that some of the cool features like this weren't region locked.
I watched MLB.tv while it was free last weekend. What a great app. HD onDemand baseball games, you can even watch from your teams own cameras. Makes me want hockey and football TV
@Chris399 - to be fair the British do pay a licence fee to cover the costs of the BBC (about £140 a year ($208)). So it would be a bit unfair if the rest of the world could access content from the BBC legitimately whilst contributing nothing financially. This is one of the reasons why the Xbox currently doesn't have iplayer. MS wants to make it part of the gold package and I believe this actually breaks the BBC licence terms (ie the Brits would be paying again for something they already paid for). The only way MS could offer the iplayer on their console is if they do it for silver members as well (which they are reluctant too).
I feel a Apple lawsuit coming!!
Apple does own the letter "i" and iPlayer's been around for years now.
no point unless you can watch HD stuff, which i doubt wil happen.
The BBC iplayer does support HD (upto 720p) and a great many programs available on iplayer are also available in HD. The BBC iplayer service also supports subtitles as well for those that are hard of hearing. It is a pretty good service I use it on my PC to catch up on programs I missed earlier and I watch nearly all of the programs in HD. Whether the PS3 incarnation of iplayer will support HD is anyone's guess although for the life of me I cannot see any reason why it shouldn't.
ya who cares if its not in HD Youtube is the biggest source for videos!
Except youtube has nothing to do with this. iPlayer HD app for the PS3 would be so awesome though.
BBC gets a lot of flak these days, but at least their tech department is always moving forwards... add ons like these are those little things that make me, and many other customers happy
